Orange Pi Development Boards

K-R42-1 (aka CS918 aka MK888 aka …) has been one of the first Rockchip RK3188 Android TV Boxes available on the market, and can be purchased for less than $90 US. Kaiboer F4, discovered at the end of June, has similar specs, but comes with 2 Wi-Fi antennas, potentially improving Wi-Fi reception. The only problem. until now, was that it was not available for sale, but this has now changed, and you can purchase it for $116 including on GeekBuying, renamed as Ugoos UT1. It’s also available on Aliexpress at higher prices at the time of writing. [Update: Dealsprime sells it for $109.99]

as well as low resolution pictures of the board.

At the bottom of the top side of the PCB, on the left side of the cable that goes to the small IR/LED board, you can see a 3-pin header with what may be GND, TX and RX, so this could be a decent Rockchip hacking platform, more practical than RK3188 mini PCs.

Geekbuying also posted some benchmark results: Antutu 3.x (15,245), Nemamark 2.4 (59.9 fps) and Vellamo (HTML5: 1544 / Metal: 491), and tested some features and apps such as Miracast, Video webcam, XBMC, Netflix…

Still seems like the K-R42 is the one to beat for price/specs. There have already been some roms released for it and it available with bluetooth for ~$93. Anyone seen a quadcore with gigabit ethernet?

I suggest to just attach an externally powered USB 2.5″ HD. The UT1 has spare USB ports. Or plug in a high performance 64GB USB flash drive. I got mine from Dealsprime on express, best price around and I got mine after only a few days. A highly recommended purchase. Thank you Ugoos for a great device!
